RHYTHMIC - CREATIVE - MUSICAL
Dan Sia is a drummer from Las Vegas. He has performed for hundreds of notable headliners, bands, and productions. Dan currently performs with AXS TV's World's Greatest Tribute Band called Bee Gees Gold. Dan has performed in Broadway tours of Hairspray, Chicago, and Mamma Mia! Dan was also the featured drummer in Sonic Odyssey created by America's Got Talent Semi-Finalist William Close.
Not only is Dan a talented musician but he is also an accomplished music arranger. Dan's attention to detail and desire to create musically perfect arrangements comes from his many years as a sight reading musician who had to perform for headline acts who provided poorly written charts and arrangements. From this frustration grew a passion for creating full band charts as well as click and backing tracks. Dan uses both Sibelius 7.5 and Ableton Live 9 to create custom charts and backing tracks. Check out the arrangement section on this website for already created charts and tracks or email Dan if you're interested in having custom arrangements made.
Dan's energy and work ethic sets him apart from other musicians. He displays a high level of musicianship and technical ability. He works very hard to make sure that every performance is flawless, exciting, and musical. Driven, determined, consistent, and musical; these are all traits that perfectly describe Dan Sia. Dan is an excellent soloist, sight-reader, and he excels at playing all genres of music. Recently Dan was featured in episode 17 of the Working Drummer podcast.

Dan is the driving force behind the energetic, powerful, and hardworking band. His energy and musicianship bring out the highest quality performances in the musicians he works with.
